The Best Low-Carb & Paleo Bread - The Ultimate Guide


Step 1Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Line a loaf pan with parchment paper: Simply cut two strips of paper - one should be the width of the sides and one the width of the ends. Make both strips long enough so that they hang over the edges and then place them in a loaf pan. The strips of parchment will be used to lift the bread from the pan. You can make the paper stick to the pan by lightly greasing the pan with ghee. I used a 20 x 13 cm / 8 x 5 inch loaf pan.

Step 2Place the whole eggs and the egg whites into a bowl and mix using a fork. Set aside for later.

Step 3Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Make sure the dry ingredients are well combined to avoid uneven results. Add the egg mixture and process well using a mixer until the dough is thick. Add boiling water and process until well combined.

Step 4Place the dough into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper.

Step 5Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes (or up to 90 minutes). When done, remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Grab the sides of the parchment paper and place the bread on the cooling rack to avoid the bread from becoming moist on the sides.

Step 6Once the bread cools down, cut into 12 to 14 slices (nutrition facts calculated per 12 slices).

Step 7Top with butter, cream cheese, sliced ham and cheese or home-made ham. Try Strawberry & Rhubarb Jam or Dark Cherry Chia Jam!

Step 8Keep as many slices as you need for the next 2-3 days. Place the remaining slices in batches of two in freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to be served, simply let the slices defrost or place in a toaster, oven or on a hot pan to crisp up.
